Recover volumes, define contours, correct imperfections and enhance the natural elasticity and smoothness of the skin are some of the properties of the new treatment of the. Natalia Ribé, Director of the Institut Dra. Natalia Ribé, with her personalized protocol with Radiesse from Merz Aesthetics.

It is about recovering the "Effect V". As the Dra explains. Ribé "It consists of recovering in a natural way and without going through the operating room the optimal distribution of the volume of the face. Achieve a youthful appearance thus obtaining an unprecedented lifting effect. "The results are very natural, visible immediately and last up to a year after injection.

Protocol of the Dra. Natalia Ribé

The Dra. Natalia Ribé performs the V-effect treatment with Radiesse, using her personal technique of vectors with punctures in the upper, middle or lower third of the face, where flaccidity is observed. To reduce the minimal discomfort of the puncture, topical anesthesia may be applied.



The director of the Institut Dra. Natalia Ribé recommends between two and three sessions, depending on the case, spaced between 4 and 6 weeks. Although the effects of this treatment are immediate, the maximum results are observed at 2 or 3 months after the first session, lasting its effects until a year that is when stimulation of the skin's own collagen occurs.

In clinical trials conducted with more than 2,000 patients, Radiesse has not had any case of granuloma, it is a very safe and widely tested product: do not forget that it is the second most used filling product in the United States. The only thing that can happen is, as with any injection, a small bruise or redness around the area where the injection was made.

This treatment can be performed after the age of 35 and all patients who undergo treatment notice the effects and are much more comfortable with their appearance.


The composition of this new filling is based on an aqueous gel (cellulose, water and glycerin) that suspends microspheres of CaHA (calcium hydroxyapatite). These particles obtain a double result: they provide volume with an immediate smoothing effect and they manage to stimulate the production of natural collagen. Without components of animal origin, it is one of the safest fillers, being today the most appropriate product to treat the flaccidity of the face. It is totally reabsorbed and its effects are visible in the long term (up to 12 months). In addition, thanks to its viscosity, Radiesse does not migrate and maintains the natural expression of the face.
